Multisite sitemaps with mapped domainnames (6 posts)

    I have a multisite subdomain install and use domainmapping (so subdomain http://subname.mymultisite.com is mapped to http://www.subname.com).

    I'm looking for a sitemap plugin that uses the mapped domainname as url instead of the subdomain url.

    In Google webmaster tools I get the error because of the subdomain url instead of the mapped domainname:
    URL not allowed
    This url is not allowed for a Sitemap at this location.

    My questions are:
    1. Is this something to worry about?
    2. Is there a sitemap generator plugin that allows for using the mapped domain name.

  2. Yoast WordPress SEO does it just fine for me :)

    Thanks the sitemap shows with the correct domainnames.

    The other SEO functionality is a bit more complex though. Have to study for the right SEO settings.

  4. There are probably some sitemap only plugins that can do it, but since Yoast's included it, I kind of left it alone.

    FWIW, you don't need a sitemap, unless you have a lot of pages that aren't linked to.

    Thanks, I tend to believe that it is good to use them.

    I noticed that a new website is faster indexed by Google if you provide a sitemap via Google Webmaster tools.

  6. Well that's true :D But once your site's index'd, as long as you don't change all your URLs, it doesn't matter.
